Becoming a Nurse
OHSU recognizes the importance of simulation technology as a tool in the education of health care providers. Its importance is rapidly expanding and will become the standard in the new millennium. A competent practitioner requires knowledge; technical skills; communication skills; and the ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment. Educators now have the ability to expose participants to each of these areas.Simulation is a part of OCNE, our statewide curriculum and helps to develop clinical judgment and becoming a nurse.
